Recently, I finished a book called Loser, by Jerry Spinelli. It had an interesting plot that was simple yet enjoyable. The writer used different elements to pull off this lively book.
The story is just basically about the life of Donald Zinkoff, a loser who lives in a small suburban city. It tells about what happens at his school and what he does at home. So there are several exciting events, such as him delivering the mail with his dad, messing up field day, befriending Hector Binns for a while, and receiving his first but last A. However, near the last half of the book, there is one more emphasized event. A girl named Claudia goes missing during the night of a very snowy day, and Zinkoff sets out to find her.
Loser had great characters, an amazing plot, and an excellent setting. The reader will surely enjoy Zinkoff unknowingly growing, changing, and developing into a normal kid who can fit in. This book will give out several giggles and laughs.

    Book Critick

    Hey guys. The reason i took off the three stars was because it simply didnt deserve them. To me it was very easy and very boring. I simply wasnt drawn in. I like books that make me feel like im the main character. This book did not do that for me and i just wasnt interested. I am so not a fan of spinellis work. I did enjoy maniac magee though. I woul not however reccomend loser to anyone. To me loser is a loser. Thumbs down Spinelli. Thumbs down.

    Loser.

    I had to read this book last year while going into sixth grade. It was kind of hard to follow and really boring. I wouldn't recommend it.

    Weird book!

    Our teacher read this book to us and I HATED it. He builds the climax, make us think he is a hero, and it turns out he's delirious. In the end he is still a wierdo.

    Horrible

    I didn't like this book because it had no plot no intresting aspects to it. When I read a book I want suspence and intergrity. Not just some big words such as tintinnabulation. I wanted to know what to look for. What to expect or have a clue about what's going on. I liked the book but I thought there could be more.
